Help, one and all. I am a newbie to the site (but not to Threads, or to creative textiles), and have offered to make my DD’s wedding gown for July 2009. We have agreed on the basics, the taffeta purchased, the pattern (which I will alter to her ‘just a bit higher here’ and ‘a bit poofier there’), but now there is the question of beading/embellishment. She is not a glitter girl, but is wearing a full crystal crown (Swedish custom), so we need to create something that will accent, but not overpower. Her FH and my husband will both be in formal kilt (ruffles included), so a bit of romanticism is ok.
Here’s the kicker…where do I start to find patterns for embellishment…googled my face off, and I’m fresh out of ideas, and time is tickin’ away!?!
